6th of January 2010

The 6th of January was the first day of our Hospital appointments for the year. This day turned out to be a very busy day packed full of appointments.

It started with an 8am pick up by the hospital transport (dont look at the date on the photo as we have needed hospital transport a few times) with the friendly and chatty Roy.

930am was an xray of Samuels femur as it was broken the end of December last year, but wasnt plastered at that time as it was so swollen.

He was then reviewed by the Orthopedic Surgeon

He was plastered straight away with a sexy black number…

Samuel then at 1030am had an Intratheical Baclofen Pump Refill. (Sorry if the spelling was wrong). I will put up a video of the refill being done soon. I have to edit it and take out some of the conversations on it for privacy reasons.

At 12pm Samuel had an EEG to check some funny eye movements that were new to rule out they werent a new form of seizures he was having. I will put up a video of the EEG also. I couldnt upload it today, Im doing something wrong, Im still learning to master the computer. I will get there.

Our last appointment for the day was to bi-valve Samuels cast. This meant that the cast was cut in half then reattached with velcro. In the hottest stand out colour available. This was Taylors choice, as we allow her to chose some things for Samuel at his Hospital visits so she doesnt feel left out.

Our time of departure from the hospital was at 2pm. Our wonderful driver Roy safely delivered us home in the Hospital Transport as Samuel still cant sit in his wheelchair because of his broken leg.

Michael then comes home a few hours later with a mid-life-crisis on his arm.

That alone was enough to top off an exhaustive day….

Much more acceptable than an affair even though I despise tattoos….
